View Full Version : [lubuntu] Installed ubuntu using ubuntu windows installer (DOESNT BOOT UP)

June 28th, 2012, 12:23 PM

I recently deleted my ubuntu 12.04 & windows 7 partitions ( was on dual boot ) and installed a fresh copy of new windows 8 devloper edition.

Now, I wanted to install ubuntu 12.04. This time instead of going with normal way ( to download image, copy to usb and then install ubuntu ), I choose the ubuntu windows install, thought it will ease my task. It installed successfully and then restarted the system.

However, now when I select ubuntu ( from dual boot options ) it just show the flash/initial boot up screen (5 dots glowing one by one) and then it hangs. I tried it many times, nothing happened.

What could be the problem and the solution?
